Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman answer if they could've won more championships together with the Bulls

bulls (1)

Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman hosted on the ESPN's show "The Jump" where they discussed the NBA landscape after their second three-peat and whether that team was capable enough to win more championships. The lack of effort from the Bulls organization prevented them to keep the core players longer together than they originally did. Despite all that, it didn't stop them from answering the questions whether they would be able to win more championship after they beat the Jazz in the 1998 NBA finals.

Both Scottie and Rodman are convinced they could've won a couple of more champions since they didn't believe there were enough teams capable enough to beat them at that time. Pippen used the Jazz as an example of a team that gave them the most problems, however, they were even older than the Bulls at that time.

"I would probably say at least 2. I would love to have challenged ourselves to a point someone could defeat us. The teams that were giving us the most trouble were the Utah Jazz. They were even older than us which gives me a sense that we could have probably run for a couple of more years of teams we could have beaten on the west coast.

Rodman said that at that time in their careers, they had enough gas in the tank for about 50 games per season, which was actually more than enough because the season after their three-peat was shortened because of a lockout. Pippen said that even though they had good intentions of staying with the same team, they all had a feeling that season was their last one together and eventually they were right.

"I think we all knew going into that last season that was the end. Nobody screwed it up really. It was going to be screwed up at the end and we just had to accept that. "
